In a year that challenged us as a society, let’s take a moment to recognize that change in the banking system is accelerating. Here are five 2020 bright spots in the movement for economic justice:
3. Protests push banks to commit to divesting from prisons, immigration detention centers, and fossil fuels.
This momentum reflects the collective work of countless advocates and resilient organizations coming together. We’re humbled to work in solidarity with each of them as we strive to dismantle inequitable power structures. At Beneficial State Foundation, we’re committed to looking throughout the entire banking system to learn what is working and who can help us build a just economy for all. We love what we do, and we can’t do it without you on our side.
To better ways of banking in 2021!
